This is country. Don't expect upscale you came to the wrong place. Concentrate on why you are here...it's the wines! The "pourers" do a good job in teaching you about the wines and how they are made. Listen to them and leave with more information about their wines than you knew when you came in the front door.

Wine tasting tour last stop Blenheim I was very disappointed. It was not in the caliber of the other wineries we went to . I was excited to go as it was Dave Matthews winery. I should have expected a down homey style so perhaps that was where I was disappointed. The wine was good but the staff wanted to... More

The wine tasting room was an A-shaped rustic barn. Very nice inside with a great deck outside. I also liked the pet-friendly attitude. I saw water/food bowls outside entrance for pets and a couple of folks with dogs. Good wine-tasting although a short one. I think their price is also lower. The tasting area was crowded in the early afternoon.... More

The wine is great and the view is great. This is Dave Matthews winery and is a very cool spot to check out. You can see the wine making room through the floor in the tasting area.

While this place has a nice view from it's main balcony ... you should probably bring your own wine. I've had wines from around the world so tasting a Virginia "wine" required me to set the bar pretty low. Regrettably not low enough as our tasting included what was the worst wines I've ever experienced. Even worse than New Jersey... More

This was hands down the favorite of our group. There wasn't a wine tasted, we did not enjoy! My favorites were the Painted White, House White, Petit Verdot, Merlot, & Rose'. The atmosphere & view here are absolutely amazing. We look forward to coming back again!

We stopped here Saturday after a morning of sight seeing. Great wines ! Didn't realize that Dave Matthews own's this winery . We enjoyed the wine so much that we bought one bottle to take home and another to enjoy there with our picnic lunch on their beautiful grounds.

Virginia, unfortunately, does not have a good palate for wines. So, if this place's wines are popular, then I am not in the corwd. I love dry wines and, up to now, Virginia has made sweet wines "because the people want sweet wines". Now,t ehy all say "all our wines are dry/ Blenheim wines were close to vinegar - yes,... More

We were on a small family get together and had a few hours to kill late in the afternoon so we took a drive up the mountain to check out Blenheim. The tasting was $6 a person and included 5 wines. They also were nice enough to waive a few of our tasting fees as 2 of us work in... More

My husband and I visited this winery while in Charlottesville. One of my favorite pastimes. I have to say, there are so many wineries in the area that with the time we had available, we only scratched the surface. But when I heard this is a Dave Matthews winery, I had to stop. His Dreaming Tree wines are some of... More
